Army combat pilot and his wife, they had spent a lot of time apart due to Dave being deployed in Iraq for a year. They used their physical abilities to dominate the season, winning a record eight legs, and becoming only the second team to crack a finishing average better than 2.00[[note]][[Characters/TheAmazingRace9 Eric & Jeremy]] being the first, though Marc & Rovilson also did it in [[Characters/TheAmazingRaceAsia2 Asia 2]].[[/note]]. All was not sunshine with the couple though, as their time apart and Dave's army training caused him to be rather stern with his wife. He yelled at Rachel a lot, treating her like a soldier instead of a spouse, which she did not just take, responding to his verbal abuse with a boatload of snark. They led for most of the final leg, but almost blew it when they followed the wrong path at the Coral Kingdom Gate, and ended up running to the Finish Line instead of the second Roadblock. Phil turned them away, but they were able to make up the time lost when Art struggled with the sledding portion of the Roadblock, as Rachel passed him, and they officially checked in for the win.

* GenreSavvy: Leg 3, when Bopper & Mark lied to them about finishing the Watermelon Detour and took their cab. It took them a small scan on the remains of the task to realize that it's not easy as it sounds, and decided to switch to the Harp Detour.

* SpotlightStealingSquad: They would take up lots of screen time. Thankfully it was not nearly as bad as it could have been, as anyone who watched ''BigBrother'' could attest.

Twin brothers, a musician and a [[TheBeautifulGame soccer player]]. After an uninspiring first two legs, they ended up on the second flight to Paraguay, and subsequently struggled with the harp stringing, finishing it long after the other teams. However, they showed up at the bottle dancing Roadblock to discover they still had a chance, as Ralph & Vanessa had struggled just as much with watermelon stacking. Ralph beat Elliot by minutes at the Roadblock, and they were eliminated in 9th.

* TheMasochismTango: For the first half of the season, until Dave & Rachel arguments became more constant while the edit focused more on Rachel R tantrums instead.

* SecretChaser: Around the mid-point of the season, they figured out that Federal Agents Nary & Jamie were not teachers like they claimed to be, and started telling all the other teams that they were cops of some sort. When they confronted Nary & Jamie about it, the girls knew their cover was blown, but kept to the lie just to annoy Art & J.J.* SeriousBusiness: They acted this way about the Race, such as when they hugely overreacted to Rachel & Dave failing to U-Turn Brendon & Rachel, even though it was pointless with Nary & Jamie so far behind. They acted like Rachel & Dave had personally stabbed them in the back, and gave a number of diatribes about how they were no longer friends.

Engaged couple, they met on ''[[Characters/BigBrother12 Big Brother 12]]'', and both returned for ''[[Characters/BigBrother13 Big Brother 13]]'', where Rachel won. As with most imports from other CBS Reality Shows, they were not popular with the other teams due to their StuntCasting status and already having won that show, but certain teams had a hatred for Rachel that people did not have for previous imports, probably because she constantly whined and complained about everything. Whatever it was, Rachel was berated right up to the finale, where they would fall behind when they mistakenly jumped in a cab instead of running to a nearby baseball field to catch a helicopter, and ended up 3rd. Rachel's over the top Wangst, and their status as ''Big Brother'' favorites got them invited back for [[Characters/TheAmazingRaceAllStars2014 All-Stars.]]

* {{Irony}}: Despite their 8 leg wins, they are the only team in the season that is issued penalties.

When they confronted Nary & Jamie about it, the girls knew their cover was blown, but kept to the lie just to annoy Art & J.J.

* TookALevelInJerkass: Aside from Brendon & Rachel, they started off relatively fine with the other teams, albeit with some egoistical issues. But once the Final 6 started...



Dating divorces. Despite their fighting, and their constant brushes with elimination, they would probably have been a lot more popular had Vanessa not ''hated'' Rachel Reilly, sometimes insulting her both to her face and to the camera, despite Ralph repeatedly telling her to let it go. Vanessa would sprain her ankle while leaving the Roadblock in leg 10, and because Ralph had run out of Roadblocks, she was forced to do the Japanese Game Show Roadblock in the next leg. She predictably took much longer than the other teams to complete a task involving so much running, which ultimately put them behind and caused them to finish 4th. They would later split up, after which Vanessa would begin dating NBA star Tim Duncan.
